I took some heat earlier this week when I noted Lastings Milledge hadn’t yet reported to camp. Several posters commented I should mention the others. So, in fairness to Milledge, here’s the status of the rest of the position players:
IN: David Wright, Jose Reyes, Ben Johnson, Damion Easley, and Carlos Beltran. The latter is in town today, but expected to show at camp tomorrow.
OUT: Carlos Delgado (flying in tomorrow), Shawn Green, David Newhan (expected in tomorrow), Julio Franco, Endy Chavez and Milledge.
Position players are due in Tuesday for physicals with the first full squad workout the next day.
Willie Randolph, by the way, was asked about Milledge not reporting early. He said he didn’t care as long as he showed up on time. The impression I got was Randolph wasn’t thrilled about answering a Milledge question so early, that he would have been happy if he were here but not overly disappointed he wasn’t.
